Each year, the U-M Museum of Zoology uses its historical endowments, some of which date from the early 1900s, to support graduate students research projects.
Behind the Scenes Day presents a rare opportunity to see the inner workings at the four museums of the Ruthven Museums Building on the U-M Central Campus each year.
Items large and small, living and dead, were carried into the Museum of Natural History by science sleuths seeking to identify their prized possessions during ID Day.
